Hello Sainsburys..... Goodbye Asda !

AdvantagesTop banana!

DisadvantagesStrange shaped Veg'

"...used to be the top Sainsburys round here, but as it's now in 2nd place because a bigger one has been built, meaning, all the crowds head for No 2 in my list… Like Lemmings, great stuff for me as the recent few visits has been bliss! And by this I mean … not packed (I hate crowds) and their mentality. On entering the site, parking has never been a problem (tops!), next the correct size of trolley can be found, that steer in right direction and have ..." Read review

Top Of The Charts, again

AdvantagesReward points, Cheap, Convenient

DisadvantagesLow stock range, especially if not an Album CD in the Charts

It's possibly why supermarkets do so well from things like this, people ..." Read review

Best DVD rental in the market

AdvantagesVery Fast and Vast number of titles to choose from


"I recently heard about the Sainsbury's DVD rental offer and I signed up for the Free Trial of 30 days. They have more than 24000 titles to choose from. I had already tried several other DVD rentals by now and did not feel writing a review of any of them until I took up this Sainsbury's DVD Rental. I could not also find a suitable category for putting this review in, so finally I chose to put it where Sainsbury's was appearing. Membership level No ..." Read review

Advantageswide range of stock

Disadvantagesprices are higher

"One of the things that is annoying about living in this Suffolk town is the lack of shopping facilities. Yes we have the obligatory woman’s fashion shop and we can even push to a Burtons and Woolworths. But when it comes to food shopping the town severely lacks (along with health care, leisure facilities etc). Indeed when it comes to shopping for food, you have the following choices: Aldi, which is okay but you can hardly ever get the same thing ..." Read review
